August 18, 2001, initiates from the Los Angeles Center held a highly
successful video seminar in the predominantly Chinese community of Monterey
Park, CA, east of Los Angeles. Despite a very light advertising campaign
for the event, the community's Bruggemeyer Memorial Library Friends
Room was filled to capacity with interested guests. Initiates had to
stand in the back and along the sides of the Room, as audience members
continued to filter into the venue all during the showing of Master's
lecture-videotape-"Return to the Innocence of Childhood."
Due to the
Library's time constraints, we were limited to a two and a half hour
period to use the venue, with some extra time for setup and cleanup.
So a question and answer session was not possible; however, the guests
seemed completely satisfied with Master's words and blessed by Her power,
so that almost all stayed behind to receive the Convenient Method, and
several requested initiation. One man even followed us out the door
when we left, announcing eagerly, "Remember to keep me informed
successful video seminars over the last several years, our Los Angeles
brothers and sisters have become used to rapid and efficient setup and
cleanup operations, and everything went off without a hitch. The experience
seemed especially meaningful for us this time, since, with a minimum
of expense and advertising, Master had helped us to pull off a highly
successful effort in a community rich in spiritual history and with
great longing for the Truth.
